SASSA: SRD R1500 to be paid monthly? See what the Government have in plan

South Africa's government recently gave out a one-time R350 COVID-19 unemployment grant, an initiative spearheaded by the African National Congress and President Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa.

If you've lost income as a result of Covid-19, or if you're already unemployed but otherwise meet the requirements, you may be eligible for financial assistance.

Since then, a few people have gone to the authorities to propose a permanent fund for the unemployed.

Sass and the Department of Social Development are being urged by the #PayTheGrants movement to promptly disburse the R350 Social Relief of Distress Grant to those who have applied for it.

In addition, they demand a regular payment of R1500 for each unemployed person. The question is whether or not the public body will pay attention to the appeal and actually give out the R1500 in extraordinary assistance.

40% of all out charge income comes from occupants spending less than the small amount allowed by SA. An estimated 18 million Sans were receiving government aid before the introduction of Covid; these individuals have since been joined by another 10 million, bringing the total number of people receiving government aid in South Africa to approximately 28 million.
